Attica - history, history and culture
Attica – that most legendary and ancient city of them all; the city that kick started Western civilization some three thousand years ago.
Of course, history looms large over this bustling 4 million plus metropolis (Greek word by the way) and some of its star attractions such as the Acropolis are etched into the world’s mind.
Yet it’s not all about the past here. The 2004 Olympics, for example, gave Attica an important facelift and brought many aspects firmly into the 21st century. Transportation, in particular was much improved.
